The next instalment for GTA may be rather away however some new information has emerged associating with brand-new patents that seem associating with Rockstar Games.
A Twitter user Big Jim Colosimo discovered a couple of brand-new patents released by Take-Two Interactive, the moms and dad business for Rockstar Games connecting to virtual environments and a new session management system for online titles.
Virtual Environments– what does this imply?
With this in mind the next game is going all in with an advanced AI system (once again) for NPCs as weve similarly seen with Red Dead Redemption II (2018) that introduced daily routines and enhancements which was a major step up compared to GTA V from 2013.
This would likewise benefit consoles as the majority of the AI would be dealt with on the servers so if this ends up being implemented into the next title, Rockstar should be able to push the video game even further beyond AI, hence wont be pressed back from any hardware constraints.
What this specific suggests, the virtual environment patent suggests a new form of created navmesh for the NPCs (it controls where NPCs are permitted to go) and it might appear that expert system may also play a part in the next title so there is a more prominent opportunity that Rockstar could be leveraging dedicated servers rather utilizing localized hardware.

This technology is somewhat already utilized in Red Dead Online however this patent reveals it might be advanced even further to occupy sessions much as possible. This function might also eliminate some packing screens if a gamer wishes to join a pals session as the video game would seamlessly change sessions as absolutely nothing happened. Or if a player is kicked from an online session, the video game will flawlessly go into the X gamer into a various session without any result or packing screen.
Being alone in the next GTA Online title might be even harder with a new patent that shows there might be a new system that combines sessions without any action on the gamer.
For the time being take all this details with a grain of salt. Companies can typically release patents without some things ever being included in a final product.
